Isolate a part of the modeling

Post by Snoopy87 »

Hi everyone,

I have downloaded a v3m which is a bouquet of flowers and I would like to isolate only one flower. Is it possible with VCarve to do this kind of operation ?

Thanks for your help

Regards

Yes. You can draw a vector around it and use that to limit the 3D toolpath to just that item. I believe you can also do it with level clipping but I don't have much experience with that. Here's a tutorial on that - https://www.vectric.com/support/tutoria ... 3DAssembly
